Pope attacks gay marriage…AGAIN!

File under “Doubling Down — In The Vain Hope That The Tide of History Will Turn Back The Clock.”

Benedict promoted traditional marriage in his annual ‘State of the Church’ speech at the Vatican and added posts lauding truth, faith and family to his popular personal Twitter account this week.

Benedict ClausSpeaking to the Curia, the bureaucrats who run the global church of 1.2 billion Catholics, the pope said opposition to gay marriage is a way of defending humanity: “Whoever defends God is defending man.”

Benedict also quoted the chief rabbi of France, Gilles Bernheim, who has written that promoting a right to same-sex marriage is an “attack” on the traditional family made up of a father, mother and children.

The address echoed his recently released annual peace message, which said gay marriage, abortion and euthanasia are threats to world peace.

These are the threats to world peace, huh? Not war! Not poverty! Not a lack of access to education! Not sectarianism! Not nuclear arms! Not the changing climate! Jesus! No wonder fewer and fewer people take the man and the institution he represents seriously any more.

  1. He’s looking older and older. I hope Jesus calls him home soon. However, since he and JP II selected all of the Cardinals, I don’t expect any changes. The bottom God calls and loves all of us regardless of what Benedict says. Truth is no longer found in the RC church but in Independent Catholic denominations and others,

  2. I find it disconcerting that the Pope doesn’t seem to mind that his words could result in stirring up hatred against gay people. A threat to world peace? Spare us. It is sad that the Pope was raised in a society where some people were viewed as less than fully human. I fear this may have damaged the way that he views some people.
